A toll collection stations is being built at the intersection of M-11 Neva Highway and the third start-up facility of the central ring road

The only toll collection station (TCS) with barriers on the Central Ring Road (CRR) will be built at the intersection with M-11 Neva Highway and the third start-up facility. On the 47th kilometer of M-11, drivers will be able to drive into and off this toll highway to the Central Ring Road, where there will be another toll collection system, Free Flow. To combine the two systems at the intersection of the Central Ring Road-3 and M-11, a TCS and ticket issuance points (TIP) are arranged. There, drivers will pay for using the highway that leads from Moscow to St. Petersburg.

The primary route of the third start-up facility will be free of barriers, TCS will be arranged only on the side lanes. It means that those who drive from the M-10 Russia Highway from the Central Ring Road-5 towards the M-7 Volga Highway, and vice versa, will pass the junction over the M-11 without slowing down. Drivers going from the M-11 Neva Highway will have to slow down to pass the TCS (if there is a transponder) or stop to pay for their trip on the M-11. Those who drive off the Central Ring Road to the M-11 Highway will need to slow down at the TIP to get a ticket.

By the time the traffic on the Central Ring Road-3 starts, six traffic lanes will be arranged for the TCS, and four lanes for the TIP. At the moment, construction and installation works are underway to arrange an administrative building and pedestrian islands for TCS / TIP.

For reference

CRR-3, 105.87 kilometers long (one-third of the entire road length), runs through the North and Northeast of the Moscow region (Solnechnogorsk, Dmitrov, Pushkinsky, Bogorodsky, Shchelkovo, and Chernogolovka urban districts) and connects the M-11 Neva and M-7 Volga highways. The third star-up facility is the central section of the Europe-Western China international transport route (EWC ITR). Within the framework of the Central Ring Road-3, 68 artificial structures with a total length of 6,831 meters were built, among them: 5 wildlife crossings, 46 flyovers, 17 bridges, including a unique construction – a bridge over the Moscow Cannel.
The road consists of four lanes. For increasing the traffic capacity, a free flow toll collection system is developed, which eliminates the need to stop for paying. The vehicles will be identified using special sensors that determine the dimensions, state registration plate, and availability of a transponder in a vehicle. Holders of T-pass transponders will be able to pay for travel in the usual way – by replenishing the balance of the device's personal account.
